Abstract / Summary

Remember Me. The Changing Face of Memorialisation
Interdisciplinary conference, 5-7 April 2018, Hull, UK
This paper was presented in the form of a letter read at the same time as showing a short film depicting a sea burial off the coast of Cornwall. It addresses the psychic memorial site raising questions as to the need for a physical place of remembrance. Working with ephemeral and time based materials such as dust and human ashes I invite the audience to contemplate transient ways of remembering the dead as an ongoing process that is not fixed or associated with one place in time. My research focused on the idea that creative practice allows for important bonds to continue with the deceased. Death has been described as the edge at which all narrative ceases. Words, image making and sound emerge from this powerful darkness. My research explores through creative practice the ongoing relationship we have with the dead and how they continue to influence our lives.
